© 2018 CMC Today and Aron Pervin, CMC

We are in an age of disruption and experimentation. We are in this transition phase of trying to find a new productivity metric in an era of massive societal change – the fourth industrial revolution. And, it will be challenging. The World Economic Forum predicts that this “industrial revolution will bring a massive productivity boom.”1

There are some strong parallels between the management consulting body of knowledge and organizational excellence. But there are a few gaps too.

How creative thinking and disruptive innovation shape our future

This is only one of the key questions that many entrepreneurs and managers pose for the future economy – looking forward to the welfare of future generations and the preservation of the planet's natural resources at the same time as their own success. 

Many of those who have taken the path of innovation, have embraced the power of creative thinking and the potential of digital transformation – and quickly enjoy good results for their organization. But simultaneously, we might ask: “at what point have we really enhanced our larger economies”?
